The instructions stated to charge the unit in full sunlight for two days prior to use, and I placed the units switch in the on position for the first day's charging. I figured that the unit would at least light somewhat after one day of charging and was worried when it did not come on. The following two days I left the unit in the sun with the switch in the off position and it has been working just fine since then, providing about a 12 foot diameter of light for at least 8 hours into the night when used in the high output mode.
I'm not giving the lantern 5 stars as the one I received had a one inch scratch on the corner of the top section that I covered with a permanent marker.
I'd recommend this lantern for anyone looking for a solar powered accent light (it is not a bright security light) to mark a driveway or path.
Buy this expecting the 3000mah battery pack to be DOA. Gammasonic sells them for 20 bucks, if you email them, they do no respond, so don't expect a warrant replacement for a bad battery pack. The pack I got in the box was leaking fluid, had they responded, you couldn't even send it back since you can't mail leaking batteries.
Instead just create your own battery pack. You can buy 2 or 4 1865 li-ion batteries, a set of jst-sm 2-pin connectors, and solder it all together. It will work well and you won't have to deal with bad stock batteries from gammasonic. If you can't solder, I do not recommend this product since the stock batteries will be DOA.
Which is sad, the lamp look really good lit up once you create a custom battery pack so that it works.
